In college my idea of the perfect breakfast was cold pizza, and every pizza had to have pepperoni and black olives. So I guess it’s not surprising that when the idea for a low-carb Egg-Crust Breakfast Pizza popped into my mind a few years ago, it had to be pepperoni and olive breakfast pizza. And through the years I have enjoyed this quick breakfast idea so much that I’m featuring it as my Friday Favorites pick for this week.
I love making this for a quick breakfast that’s loaded with flavor. If the idea of pepperoni and olives for breakfast doesn’t appeal to you, please try this egg-crust pizza with your own favorite pizza toppings. If you prefer a vegetarian pizza, check out my Egg-Crust Vegetarian Breakfast Pizza to see what toppings I used for that one!

What makes this Breakfast Pizza Recipe so good?

This final version fits my vision of an egg-crust pizza for breakfast with not too much egg and a lot of pizza toppings. And he best thing about this breakfast pizza is definitely the pizza flavors but the fact that this can be on the table in 20 minutes (or maybe even a little less) makes it even better; enjoy!

Here are some other toppings you could use on an egg-crust breakfast pizza:

- cooked mushrooms
- cooked green bell peppers
- cooked ground beef
How to Make Egg-Crust Breakfast Pizza:
(Scroll down for complete printable recipe with nutritional infirmation.)
- Beat two eggs until they’re well mixed.
- Get your seasonings ready. (And don’t you love my well-used spice jars? I keep my spices in drawers so they need labels on the top.)
- For this breakfast pizza I used thinly sliced grape tomatoes, thinly sliced black olives, pepperoni cut in half, and cubes of mozzarella.
- Heat some olive oil in an 8 inch non-stick omelet pan over medium heat.
- I used an 8 inch non-stick omelet pan (affiliate link) which was the perfect size!
- Add the egg, season with Spike Seasoning (affiliate link) and Dried Oregano (affiliate link), and cook until eggs are about half set.
- Then add half the tomatoes, pepperoni, olives, and mozzarella, followed by another layer of the four ingredients.
- Be sure to end with cheese so there’s some cheese on the top. (When I didn’t layer the ingredients, the heavier things sunk to the bottom.)
- Cover the pan and cook 3-4 minutes, until eggs are not quite completely set.
- The next photo is how it looked when I put it under the broiler, followed by the after shot. This was about 4 minutes in my toaster-oven broiler, but probably less time in a large oven broiler.
- Delicious! And almost as good as cold pizza for breakfast!

I used an 8 inch non-stick omelet pan (affiliate link) which I love! You’ll need an 8-inch nonstick pan to make a breakfast pizza that looks like mine. (When I used a bigger pan, I didn’t like it as well with more egg.)

Thanks for putting this recipe to the forefront. I’m Pinning it for an easy Sunday breakfast!
So glad you like it! I assume you saw that there is a vegetarian version too?
This recipe looks great. It has everything in it that I like, so it must be tasty. I will try it out this weekend. I too label my spice jars that way since they are in a drawer. The link for the fry pan takes you to a 12” pan…not the 8”. Were you aware of that?
Hope you enjoy trying it. My spices are in a drawer too (at least some of them!)
Thanks for telling me about the link. I hate it when Amazon changes link destinations like that. And when I checked it looks like the Calphalon 8-inch Omelet Pan that I love so much is a lot more expensive now. What matters is that it’s an 8-inch pan, so I linked to a page with some choices in the brand so people can choose the pan that fits their budget.
what a great recipe, Kalyn! saving this for very soon!
Thanks Sally; so glad you like it!
Hello, how do you combine two different types of recipes? I need no carb, no sugar, meatless recipes. Your recipes seem to meet my needs closer than others. Thank you.
I don’t think there are many recipes that can be called “no carb.” But most of my recipes don’t have sugar and if you scroll through the category for Low-Carb Recipes and look for the ones that are meatless there should be some that will work for you.
YUM, my family & I will LOVE this! We’re SO busy, and we’re all going in different directions every morning, so we don’t have the time for a leisurely breakfast during the week. Many times, I make a (clean-out-the-fridge) Frittata for dinner on Thursday evenings, and we always enjoy it. I’ll definitely try out this recipe in the near future, but I’ll have to substitute Canadian Bacon (ea. slice cut into 4ths) for the Pepperoni, since (even though we’re Italian) none of us care for it. As a matter of fact, even Genoa salami might work well in this dish. Thanks for a lovely recipe, and another great idea.
Angelina, so glad you like the idea; hope you enjoy!
I used Canadian bacon because it was what I had on hand and it was yummy. Didn’t have grape tomatoes so I diced up part of a Roma tomato I had.
That sounds good to me!
OK, you sold me. I’m going to try this. I can’t decide if I should wait until I have pepperoni or give it a go without. Decisions, decisions…
Normally pepperoni is a pizza must for me, but I did like the vegetarian version of this! Hope you enjoy.
I really like this recipe. Scrambled eggs with cheese gets really old after 3 days. I used turkey bacon because it is what I had on hand. Will definitely be using this recipe as a base for many breakfasts. Thanks so much!
Thanks; so glad you like it!
Thanks Jessica, hope you enjoy!
This looks so good… I can't wait to try it when my family eats their regular pizzas! I love pizza, but unfortunately, the doughy crust doesn't love me. This is the perfect compromise!
Lisa, so glad everyone enjoyed it!
Hey! Finally a Paleoesque recipe I can get into. Not only was it delicious, but even the kids liked it! Thanks so much for sharing.
This turned out beautifully – I'll use this recipe again! I threw in a little baby spinach to get some greens in too.
Sally, so glad you enjoyed it!
Ahh! This was lovely! I changed it a bit to make it more pizza-y.
I added tomato sauce, I mixed about a tablespoon in with the eggs along with italian seasoning, then put the rest of the serving on top of the toppings before I added the cheese.
I don't have a pan to put into a broiler, so I finished it off in the microwave, which worked pretty well, the cheese was still gooey.
Will DEFINITELY to this again!
I love this idea! Although I am not a fan of Pizzas, I know my husband will love this delicious spin on Eggs and Cheese 😉
Thank you so much #HUGSSS
